It’s her first ever beauty pageant and what a stellar start this Australian stunner has got off to! FashionTV meets the future Miss Australia and talks about her campaign to win the national title, and dreams of making it as Miss World.

Twenty-year-old Aussie beauty Katherine Martin is from Melbourne, and has been working hard to secure her place in the Miss Australia finals that take place in just two days time! Joining 32 other national finalists, Katherine will be put to the test over three days of competitions — a talent show, beach beauty challenge, and top model contest — to battle it out for the coveted title.

Katherine talks determination, strength, and both inner and outer beauty with FashionTV!

How did you get into modeling?
I started modeling when I was 18, I got into grid girl promotional work with the V8 supercars. I then got into an agency with FRM Model Management.

What would it mean to you to win the National title?
If I won the Nationals it would be a life changing experience. I would focus on charity work and challenge myself to make a difference to the world. I am a big animal lover, and would focus on helping animal charities. I would also love to be a role model for young girls, and help aspiring models break into the industry.

What are you most looking forward to during the week’s events?
I am most looking forward to meeting all the girls in the pageant. Just to meet all the people who have come together for this exciting event.

What do you think it takes to win Miss World?
I believe that the girl who wins Miss World, has to be confident, have a great personality, and be committed to making a difference to world issues. She needs to be seen as a role model and a girl that does not only look beautiful but has a positive attitude towards any situation.

What’s been the highlight of your campaign so far?
I hosted a High Tea event at home, which over 50 friends and family attended. We ended up helping to raise over $900 for the indigenous Lila Community, which is an amazing cause. It was a great way to get everyone together and see the results.

How do you like to keep fit?
I keep fit by running up 1,000 steps at the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria, Australia, and riding my horses. I have always liked to keep active.

How would you describe your style?
I love high fashion, designer labels, and lots of shoes!

Do you have any favorite designers?
Manning Cartell is my favorite, because [sisters Cheryl, Vanessa, and Gabrielle Manning] know how to make modern and young fashion with a relaxed edgy twist.

Who is your idol?
Jennifer Hawkins: the Australian beauty queen that won Miss Universe Australia and Miss Universe!
